Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : wv (MDKSA-2006:202)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple integer overflows in the WV library in wvWare (formerly
mswordview) before 1.2.3, as used by AbiWord?, KWord, and possibly
other products, allow user-assisted remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted Microsoft Word (DOC) file that produces
(1) large LFO clfolvl values in the wvGetLFO_records function or (2) a
large LFO nolfo value in the wvGetFLO_PLF function.

Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.1
